Often we get calls on our helpline asking, “What is the abortion pill price?” If you are not familiar with the term, “abortion pill” is the popular name for RU486, the drug utilized in a medication abortion.
No matter the reason you are wondering about the abortion pill price, we would like to help. We are Avenue Women’s Center, a women’s limited medical clinic, serving women in Chicagoland for over 35 years. If you are asking about the abortion pill price, you likely have additional important questions about pregnancy and abortion. Our caring staff members are here to assist you, and can also schedule a free, private consultation if you would like to do that. We hope you will call or text us today.
Abortion pill price has many variables. The FDA is not authorized to regulate abortion pill prices, nor does it have input or legal control over whether or not the cost of a drug is covered by insurance. Prices of drug products in the United States are set by manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. Although often around $400, the current cost of the abortion pill can be up to $800. The cost of the pill is higher in some states than in others. The final cost may be affected by whether or not a woman needs additional tests or doctor visits. Another variable that can impact cost is how far along into her pregnancy (how many weeks pregnant) a woman is. The abortion pill may be used up through the 10th week of pregnancy.
Understandably, abortion pill price is an important consideration. However, it’s critical not to focus solely on cost. When a service is health-related, much can be at stake. You need to consider not only financial options, but all risks and everything that is involved.
When faced with an unplanned pregnancy, there are many decisions a woman needs to make. If you would benefit from our services, including the ability to determine exactly how far along you are and your eligibility to use the abortion pill, we are here to help and support you. We have five locations in the DuPage County area – Elmhurst, Glen Ellyn / Lombard, Naperville, West Chicago and Wood Dale, Illinois – please contact us today.
